Blaze is a red Fancy Leaf caladium variety. These shade loving caladium bulbs or tubers are great for adding easy color to your late spring and summer plantings. Blaze, also known as Dr. T.L. Meade, is an old, very hearty caladium variety that is considered medium to short in height (1-1.5 ft). Blaze caladium bulbs are tropical foliage plants that are easy to grow in landscaping, pots and planters. Blaze caladiums have medium to large leaves with bronze toned red center, rose veins and an olive green margin. Caladium bulbs originated in the Amazon Basin, which is why they require and thrive in the warm summer day and night temperatures. Caladiums are from the Araceae family and mix well with other annuals, Hosta’s, ferns, and foliage.
